About Rye Bowls Club
The History of Rye Bowls Club
As many Rye residents were members of Sorrento bowling club, they felt that it was time Rye had its own Bowling Club, so a public meeting was held on 28th. November 1958, this resulted in a committee being formed, to oversee the construction work & recruitment of foundation members. The Flinders Shire Council provided the land under lease & some money and the members provided much voluntary toil to bring the dream into fruition on Opening Day, 24th. September 1960.
Over the next 3 decades many improvements were made to facilitate members’ enjoyment of this wonderful Sporting and Social Club.
